The Po Boy Story.


Gritz Café introduces a sandwich out of the South called the Po Boy. In 1929, during a four-month strike against the streetcar company, the Martin brothers served their former colleagues free sandwiches. The Martins' restaurant workers jokingly referred to the strikers as "poor boys", and soon the sandwiches themselves took on the name. Poor boy sandwiches represent bedrock New Orleans. In Louisiana dialect, this is naturally shortened to "po" boy.
